    Another nod from the left MoveOn, the progressive activist group who once received money from George Soros, has decided to endorse Bernie Sanders for the presidency, giving him yet another accolade from the left wing of the Democratic Party. Unlike some other political groups, MoveOn’s endorsement is decided by a vote of its members, with a 2/3 majority needed for the official nod to be given. MoveOn endorsed Howard Dean in 2004 and Barack Obama in 2008.

    Bernie Sanders just won a game-changing endorsement with weeks to go before the first primary ballots are cast. MoveOn, the 17-year-old progressive advocacy group with hundreds of thousands of members nationwide, just overwhelmingly endorsed the Vermont senator's presidential campaign. The endorsement race wasn't even close -- Sanders won 79 percent of the vote with over 340,000 ballots cast. "This is a massive vote in favor of Bernie Sanders, showing that grassroots progressives across the country are excited and inspired by his message and track record of standing up to big money and corporate interests to reclaim our democracy for the...

    Dems: Red Light Alert: President Barack Obama’s ally MoveOn, self-described as “one of of the most powerful—and effective—progressive groups in the nation”, wants Americans brought under the boot of Islamic Sharia law. MoveOn lists “Keeping Sharia law out of a city near you” on a December 27 email to members as one of the reasons why “the whole Republican field just keeps getting crazier”. MoveOn activists are in panic mode that Donald Trump could really get elected.

    In an email sent to supporters of the progressive political group MoveOn.org, ice cream icons Jerry Greenfield and Ben Cohen asked recipients to join them in supporting the Iran deal to keep America out of another war in the Middle East. Lobbyists and billionaires plan to spend over $40 million to stop the diplomatic deal with Iranthe one the Obama Administration negotiated to prevent Iran from getting nuclear weapons. Thats dangerous, because if too many Democrats listen to the flood of hawkish, misinformation-ridden TV adsand if they vote with Republicansthey could override the presidents agreement in just about a month.

The purpose of their clandestine meeting was "to use their fortunes to engineer the defeat of President George W. Bush," The New Yorker magazine reports in its most recent edition. Details of the meeting remain sketchy, but the magazine described the Aspen conference this way: "Five billionaires joined half a dozen liberal leaders in a lengthy conversation about the...

The issues go far beyond whether NIAC has been illegally operating without registering as a foreign agent, and have ensnared NIACs close ally, none other than J Street. First, NIAC is a Soros-backed group. Soros is of course the money behind MoveOn.org and got J Street up and running. He is also paying the $90,000 annual salary of the NIAC staffer, Patrick Disney.

    State Department employees did not receive proper training and guidance on rules requiring the preservation of emails for the official record, according to the department's inspector general. In a report released Wednesday, the inspector general found that of the one billion emails sent in 2011, only 61,156 were preserved. That number dropped to 41,749 in 2013. The report, conducted in early 2014, found that some employees do not retain emails because "they do not want to make the email available in searches or fear that this availability would inhibit debate about pending decisions," according to the report.

But it has now come out that for two years, Hillary Clinton blocked efforts to add Boko Haram to the State Departments list of terrorist organizations. This wasnt just an episode of bureaucratic indifference. The Justice Department, the FBI, the CIA and...

    The president's expansion of the U.S. military mission in Iraq is conjuring up two dirty little words for anti-war Democrats: Mission creep. Just two months ago, when Obama announced he was going to send up to 300 American troops to Iraq, he emphasized that they would only have an advisory, non-combat role. On Friday, however, U.S. fighters bombed terrorist targets in northern Iraq. Hours before, the president had announced he was authorizing such strikes as well as the airdropping of aid to Iraqi refugees stranded on a mountaintop. The White House has stressed that the two missions the airstrikes...

    MoveOn.org has started a petition to get ESPN reporter Chris Broussard immediately suspended from the network for comments he made regarding Jason Collins's homosexuality, which Broussard said was a sin according to his personal Christian beliefs. The group said Broussard was engaging in "gay bashing." The petition reads: Chris Broussard's hateful attack on Jason Collins for being gay was an unacceptable misrepresentation of the Christian faith. ESPN must immediately suspend Chris Broussard and guarantee that their network will never again be used for gay bashing. In its "petition background" statement, the left-wing organization says that after Jason Collins "emphasized the...

    Faithful America refused on Thursday to verify a claim that it had collected signatures from more than 20,000 Christians petitioning ESPN to suspend sports analyst Chris Broussard for what they feel are "hateful" comments towards NBA player Jason Collins who recently revealed he is gay. Collins announced in a Sports Illustrated article on Monday that he was a gay man who took his faith in Jesus Christ seriously. In a later interview on ESPN's "Outside the Lines"show, however, Broussard who is a practicing Christian said Collins' position was inconsistent with biblical teachings. "Personally, I don't believe that you...

Heres a report from the Front Lines in Westfield NJ: from one of our members Dave R. The Move On crowd was very disappointed that we were there, and WE WERE STRONG!

We had several Gadston flags. NBC-4 from NYC...

    Left-wing billionaire George Soros MoveOn.org has jumped into the fight for a unionized Wal-Mart workforce. MoveOn.org has sent emails to subscribers nationwide, urging them to descend on Wal-Mart stores on Black Friday. The organization is encouraging people to strike against management even if they arent Wal-Mart employees. Instead of listening to and learning from its workers, Wal-Mart has sought to silence us and retaliate against those who dare to speak up, MoveOn.org said in its email to supporters. Warehouse workers who work for Wal-Mart contractors have also experienced retaliation for speaking out. Now, Wal-Mart workers have had enough. Black Friday...

    ​This post contains graphic language. Discretion is advised. – If you thought the Lena Dunham ad comparing voting to sexual intercourse with the president was crass, you might want to skip this story. Left-wing filmmaker Michael Moore and Moveon.org have teamed up to make an ad — titled “Greatest Generation” — that actually includes the phrase “cock punch” and features a woman old enough to be many peoples’ great grandmother promising to “burn this motherf**ker down.” The ad is allegedly centered around the issue of voter fraud, but really is focused on the idea that a victory by Mitt Romney...

    SARASOTA, Fla. Supporters and opponents of Mitt Romney faced off outside of the Republican nominee's rally here in an at-times-violent confrontation. As hundreds of Romney supporters lined the sidewalk outside the Ringling Museum of Art, a group of more than 20 protestors carrying an effigy of Romney marched in and confronted them as both sides chanted. One of the men leading the protest, organized by Occupy and Move-On according to demonstrators, repeatedly cut into the Romney line drawing pushing and shoving. Get a job, I worked my 50 years, shouted one Romney supporter at the demonstrators. One man,...
